BARCELONA, Spain – Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced on Saturday that the Spanish Football League could resume on June 8.
While the top division, La Liga, can play from this date, it has already announced that it will resume play on June 12th. It is unclear when the first games will take place.
Since March 12, there has been no top league game due to the coronavirus crisis.
The teams have recently returned to training in club facilities, but the players are training individually. Players are also tested for the corona virus.
The interruption of the season forced several clubs, including Barcelona, to lower their salaries due to a drop in sales.
Barcelona are leaders with 27 points ahead of Real Madrid after 27 of 38 rounds.
The German league was resumed last week with teams playing in stadiums without fans.
The Spanish authorities have not yet announced what health measures will be taken when the game restarts.
"Of course, the game will continue under conditions that ensure maximum health security for all participants," said Sánchez.
Spain has confirmed more than 28,000 deaths from COVID-19.
